In the wake of depression, where are my hobbies?

Posted by zonked on February 26, 2013, at 7:40:53

I was just thinking, recently, about my life - and age (around 30) - and that, even when I have zero depression, and I can focus, I have lost my hobbies.

Even before things got *really bad* in 2008, I smothered myself in work in order to avoid getting hurt.

I also have perfectionist tendencies, and whenever I wanted to try something new, at least after my teens, if I thought I couldn't do it well I thought, why bother?

There is a substantial vacuum in my life.
I know the *capability* of being interested in things (particularly once I restart my Dexedrine) is there; but I don't know where to start with hobbies, or how to make friends, anymore.

One thing I've busied myself with default is how to *ing fix myself, which despite my occasional rants has more or less been done. I am pretty handy with psychopharm, but that's because I've been trying to fix myself and I think I deserve some credit for that, but that's no way to meet people....

Has anyone faced anything similar?

I am glad for this board. I never feel comfortable talking about my fears or feelings or anything related to my diagnoses on Facebook (have you noticed that it seems no one else does either?..)
